I earn a basic salary and earn commission every month. How do I know what percentage of my commission earnings will have to go to tax? I find it difficult to manage my expenses as I never know what percentage of my money will have to go towards tax. Are you able to tell me what these percentages are based on how much one would earn?

You can get a tax directive asking your employer to subtract the same amount of tax each month, otherwise make use of our SARS income tax calculator to see what you monthly and yearly tax will be and you can update on a monthly basis.
